Following the passing of an Interim Control By-law (ICBL) on April 26, 2021, the Town moved quickly to address the challenge of future water capacity allocation by advancing a Land Use Planning Policy Study. The goal is to implement the recommendations of the Study in advance of the expiration of the one-year ICBL study period. Planning for sustainable growth within a municipality requires an alignment between land use planning and infrastructure decisions to ensure that hard services are available to support construction.

The Town is hosting consultation sessions with the general public and development community to provide the opportunity for feedback on servicing capacity allocation solutions. Based on a best practices review, we will share tools the municipality can utilize to provide a fair and predictable process for servicing capacity allocation that clarifes how a fnite resource can be managed in the best way for our community. A preliminary Water and Wastewater Allocation Policy along with zoning and ofcial plan changes will be presented for comment and feedback.

Two Virtual Presentations - Hosted through Zoom, will be conducted on November 23, 2021:
Session 1 – Development Community from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Session 2 – General Public from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Meridian Planning Consultants will present the preliminary Servicing Capacity Allocation Policy framework followed by a professionally facilitated Question-and-Answer period.

Zoom details for the public sessions and a link to Staff Report P2021-35 with a best practices review and the recommended tools for a Servicing Capacity Allocation Framework will be available for review at
